To support the development and approvals for PPE products, we offer additional supporting tests such as accelerated aging, cleaning and reprocessing trials, material and mechanical testing, SEM microscopy, and more.
Internationally recognized standards are followed meticulously to ensure accuracy of our results when evaluating your products. If a non-standard test is needed, our engineering team will develop and incorporate modifications to suit your specific product and data needs.
We pride ourselves on the ability to meet our customer’s specific needs with personalized service and rapid turn-around.
SEM MicroscopyHigh magnification microscopy provides visual interpretation of the individual fibers that make up a fabric swatch. Low-vacuum backscatter allows for clear visualization of non-conductive materials such as polymers.
Material and Mechanical TestingOIC’s broad array of mechanical testing equipment provides full capability for material properties characterization including tensile strength, elongation, and tear propagation.
Cleaning, Reprocessing, Sterilization TrialsA customized cleaning and/or sterilization protocol can be developed with input from the client to determine best-practices for reprocessing of re-usable PPE products.
Inline Ventilator FilterFilters for ventilator and respiratory systems are challenged with sub-micron salt particles to determine the percent efficiency of filtration.
Accelerated shelf-agingMedical packaging and devices are exposed to increased temperature for an extended period of time to simulate real-time shelf aging.
